Yay! I love the weekends. I have a busy one ahead of me. Friday night I attended a Silpada jewelry party at my friend’s house. So I decided to make a healthy treat to share with all the lovely ladies at the party. I made these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. Adapted from my Betty Crocker Cookbook.
How fun is that?
- 3/4 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2/3 cup chocolate chips
- In a medium bowl mix oats, flour, baking soda, and salt.
- In a separate bowl, beat butter until fluffy.
- Add oil, sugars, egg, and vanilla extract into the butter.
- Mix dry ingredients into wet on low speed until just combined.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Rest in refrigerator for about an hour
- When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheet(s) with parchment paper.
- Roll in .7 ounce balls onto prepared baking sheet(s).
- Bake 1 sheet at a time, on middle rack, until firm around the edges-about 12 minutes.
- Cool on sheets for 2 minutes, then transfer to wire racks or other surface.
As I was making this recipe, I wanted to make sure I made at least 30 cookies. By weighing each rolled cookie dough on the food scale at .07 ounces, I ended up with 34 cookies.
I hope you enjoy your weekend. When I am done making my Tequila sauce, I will let you know how it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by.
